How Change Management Will Get You Better Project Execution
Change is the only constant. With an ever more demand on project managers and minimal resources, the success or failure of a project is contingent on project implementation.
However, resistance to a project’s change efforts can derail even the most carefully laid out initiative. While programs such as Lean Six Sigma, PMI's PMP, and Prince 2 may offer the structure and tools to manage projects, they don't spend enough time on change management. How will you as a project manager be able to work through the psychological impact of your project?
Luckily, many change management models have been created by industrial psychologists in an effort to help you as a practitioner deal with this specific challenge. This Profit through Process Interactive webinar will get you started in knowing how to use these models in order to achieve more effective project execution.
